But did you know that there are tons of apps that are built to help you gain an edge?

Analyzing your swing - Zepp Golf Swing Analyzer
How might someone improve their golf swing if they aren’t able to see what their swing looks like? Enter the Zepp Golf Swing Analyzer app, an app that allows you to record swings, trace overlays, and share highlight videos with your golf friends. In addition to just recording your strokes (your smartphone’s built-in video app can do that, after all), Zepp also connects to your Apple Watch to offer primary real-time swing metrics. According to the Apple App Store description, the Zepp Golf Sensor takes it up a notch by “instantly measuring the most important aspects of your swing: club speed, club plane, tempo, backswing length and more.”

The app covers the biggest golf tournaments, so you can get live scoring updates and even live streams while you’re out enjoying a round or two of your own. Set notifications for your favorite golfers and tours, so you never miss an update.
Keeping score of your games – mScorecard
If all you are looking for is a simple app to keep score of your games, look no further than mScorecard. It collects stats for up to five players while also calculating handicaps. An additional feature of this app is the ability to analyze stats and share them with friends.
Playing by the rules- The R&A Rules of Golf
There are so many rules in golf that it’s understandable if you’re a little rusty on the official golf rules. That’s where The R&A Rules of Golf app comes in. It’s easy to use and packed with rules, definitions on tips from everything to course rules to game etiquette. Plus, it’s free.
Using the apps with your Rokform case
When you’re on the course, it’s easy to access your smartphone and the connected golf apps with a Rokform case. That’s because the magnet built into our cases conveniently grips onto multiple surfaces on a golf cart, so you could even capture footage or view the app hands-free from your golf cart. Not only does this simple signature feature free up your cup holder to use for bev cart purchases, it puts all of our favorite apps and much more at your fingertips.
Don’t forget to pick up Rokform’s specific accessories for golf, the G-ROK Golf Speaker and the V3 Golf Shooter. The G-ROK is dustproof, waterproof and boasts a 30-foot wireless range (use responsibly!).
After many requests from Rokform customers, we are stoked about releasing the Golf Shooter earlier this summer, allowing you to instantly convert your smartphone into the perfect golf tool. It is the perfect accessory to help you quickly get video feedback on the range or golf course, so you can continuously improve every aspect of your swing. Simply push the Golf Shooter into the turf, attach your Rokform case to the Golf Shooter using magnet technology or RokLock Twist Lock mount system, line it up with the right view, and shoot your video. It’s perfect for use with any swing analyzer apps.
